The DailySun on Education in the New Century:

Under the guise of reforming public education, [New York City schools’] Chancellor Joel Klein has been sending down directives covering everything from the arrangement of chairs in the classroom to the number of minutes teachers can spend on extracurricular activities. One controversial order insists that teachers sit in rocking chairs while reading aloud to the class. Just to punctuate the point, a middleschool math teacher told the story of being reprimanded in front of the class by her new math “coach” for giving too much praise to her students for doing their homework right.
